House Speaker John Boehner gets a little wound up now and then, so his staff got him a wind-up monkey to hang out with.

“This sits in my office on my coffee table, because this is me,” he explains in a video, posted to the speaker’s blog, that captures the unlikely pair’s relationship.

“Every 15, 30 minutes [my staff members] come in and wind me up, and I do my thing,” he adds.
